If you've ever seen the movie White Christmas, or (better) Holiday Inn, you will know that even in the 1940's the rural New England inn was considered anachronistic, and not many survive with their charm and idiosyncrasy intact. As of October, 2016, I am pleased to report that the Shelter Harbor Inn is still its charming, if idiosyncratic, self. My... More

This is a hard review to write. On one hand the staff was great, the room was clean and quiet, and the food was great. On the down side, the room was small, the bed was small and the doors were very low. I hit my head going into the bathroom and I'm only 6' 2". The other problem I... More

Upon our arrival, we found that the room we booked was double booked, and we had to be relocated to a room on the third floor, which was ok, but not what we expected. We later found that the people who got our original room had to change their room as well, since their a/c broke. There were stairs up... More

We have been coming here for a week in August for 13 years. It used to be great; a local gem. But gone was the life and community it used to provide. This summer we booked our room months in advanced, as it used to be so busy in August, but this time barely anyone was there. The complimentary breakfast... More

We paid 225.00 for one night in room 13 in the barn. The room was tiny. Not anything like the pictures made it look. It was also very old and musty smelling. Apparently the built in AC/heat unit was broken, because their was a tiny window unit that was filthy and rattled and did not work very well. It was... More

My husband and I booked 4 days over the fourth of July weekend and will not return to the Shelter Harbor Inn. It appears the Inn may have been a great experience in the past. However, the property has been neglected and needs painting and staining inside and out. The grounds are unkempt. The hot tub was disgusting and should... More

We pulled in during our stay at Burlingame Campground for a good meal, and we were not disappointed. James served us Banana Mimosa's that were made to tasty perfection. We both ordered the omelets and the portions were enough for to satisfy us till dinner. The property is lovely and many of the rooms have been updated just recently. We... More

Dinner at this inn is just ok. For a place near the ocean it is light on seafood-- just calamari, cod , crab cakes and farmed salmon. The rolls are warm and you can get liver and onions but there's nothing on the menu most people couldn't make at home. Service at the start of the summer season is amateurish... More

We have stayed here multiple times over many years going back for approximately ten years. We stopped going a few years back because they have not updated. Furnishings were shabby and housekeeping was poor. We still come to the area at least twice a year but we never stay there. We just stopped in to see if they had renovated... More
